Thanks everyone for the help.  I've gotten so used to P4win, that I forgot
to check out the more powerful commands of p4.

Use p4 flush.  You can even p4 flush your local client to the remote
client's versions using the //... at client-name syntax so that it has the same
revisions as what you brought home on the thumbdrive.

Is there any way to tell Perforce that a particular clientspec is actually
up to date without it downloading all of the files itself?  

I will occasionally work on small jobs at home.  Since I have a dialup
connection, and our depots are rather large, it is faster for me to copy the
files onto a thumbdrive, take them home with me, and then copy them onto my
home system.  

If I tell Perforce to use the same clientspec on both machines, everything
work out OK, but I have to be sure bring all of the modified files with me
when I go back to work, or things get fairly messed up.  What would be nice
would be to have a different clientspec at home, yet when I copy the files
over, convince it that everything is synced up.  Is this possible, or am I
trying to go outside the system too much?
